Jahn Dotson was a big drama monster during his time at Penn State and a pillar of consistency for the Nittany Lions with 21 touchdowns in his last 21 games. The former four-star recruit saw early times at Happy Valley, playing eight games as a true freshman. He exploded as a sophomore with 27 receptions for 488 yards and five touchdowns, which gave him a healthy average of 18.1 yards per reception.
As a junior, during the COVID’s short season, Dotson led the nation in receptions of 40 yards or more with four and was also the Big Ten leader in receiving yards with 884. He also made noise as a punt returner with a new school record. 24.6 yards per return. As a senior, Dotson intercepted 91 receptions for 1,181 yards and 12 touchdowns, but most Bucky fans will remember his outing which included 11 receptions for 127 yards and a quick touchdown.
Dotson is a tad short at 5-foot, 11-inches and 178-pounds, but Dude is power with the ball in his hands and the speed to be a devastating deep threat. Every NFL team wants to add more play-makers and few are as versatile as Dotson.
